Some coding questions provide sample input files but don't get around to naming the input file. The answerers often make up their own unique input filenames, like "file", "input", "inputfile", or "foo". Sometimes a reasonable variation on an input file name can break a seemingly correct given answer, or make it harder to understand, (e.g. when describing the
file command syntax
file file is more confusing than
For a given answer it's more useful for readers to just see one set of names.
Should Qs and As be retroactively harmonized, i.e. edited to use the same names?
If so, which names? (The most popular A, or the OP's favorite A, or what?)
Qualification: some Q & As are simple enough, (with minimal file access), that they need no specific input file names, and are therefore outside of the scope of this question.
